If you could own one movie/TV show car and drive it, what would it be?

    One car, one choice. These are in "prop" form not in movie experience. So K.I.T.T. will not have a functional Turbo Boost, unless you install one. Feel free to express the reasons for your choice. No "other choice" as I think these vehicles are iconic enough. If there is an egregious omission, share it below.

    My vote: El Torino

    Totally. Also that tail rocket muffler thing would be functional. Great for setting up a campfire.

    You would consider the Blue Nova as your daily ride to show off?

    I purposely left off any James Bond car (usually an Aston Martin) because too many movies and too many choices.

    And finally the poll is locked, no more edits. So of course I think of another iconic car to add:

    1961 Ferrari GT California

    with only 126 miles on the odometer :righton:

    '67 Batmobile.

    I'd pick Bond's Lotus Esprit.

    Steve McQueen’s Shelby Mustang from Bullit. If I have to explain why, you wouldn’t understand. :cool:

    I think I am going to go with the green VW bug in Bullitt that miraculously keeps getting ahead of Steve McQueen!

  15. I understand, and it's my choice as well. Of those not listed, I'd go with the white Dodge Challenger from Vanishing Point. That's a sweet ride.

    For my pimp ride:
    Norma Desmond's Isotta-Fraschini.

    For my daily sporty:
    Mad Max's Holden

    For groceries:
    I second the green VW bug from "Bullitt".

    For when my wife throws me out of the house for buying the Isotta-Fraschini:
    The motor home from "Breaking Bad."

    REMINDER: These are prop vehicles so what appears inside them is in show only. So with that said, you must bring your own hot plate and meth lab.

    I picked the Trans Am because it is similar to the Rockford Files Firebird. I once owned a 75 Firebird Espris just like the one James Garner drove.

    Good choice.
     
  22. The Monkee Mobile along with the BTTF DeLorean would be high on my list. Third The Tumbler from Batman Begins although it doesn't look like a very comfortable ride.

    Derek Slazenger Specs, rugs & rock n roll

    The Porsche from '48 Hours' or the Aston Martin from 'Goldfinger' but out of this list I'd have to go for the Shelby (as long as it was in the same condition it was in during filming) :)
